Didn't score the waves we were after but surfed every afternoon - bare reef at low tide so if the swell's down only surfed mid-high. Beautiful spot, incredible food, great snorkelling, skurf, kayak, fish.

Thank you for your review. Unfortunately mother nature doesn't always play the game and the season kicked off slower then usual this year. We are glad you enjoyed your stay at our island paradise and hope to see you here again soon!
